Lake Garda is the biggest lake in Italy and located in the North. It was formed by glaciers at the end of the last ice age, in an alpine region. It’s breathtaking from every angle and the towns surrounding the lake all bring something different to the mix. There are five islands in the lake. Those names are Isola del Garda, Isola San Biagio, Isola dell’ Olivo, Isola di Sogno, and Isola di Trimelone.
Isola Del Garda is the biggest of all five islands. It’s incredibly beautiful. The history is very interesting so if you’d like to learn more the island is open for tours from May to September. The guided tour will last about 2 hours and you will see the English and Italian gardens as well as a few rooms in the 20th-century neo-gothic, Venetian style villa. At the end of the tour you will get the opportunity to taste some local products like wine, olive oil, and some snacks. It’s something the whole family will enjoy doing together.
If you are planning a trip to the island for a school or big tour group you need to contact the lady that works with the tours via their website the moment you start planning. It’s best to arrange the visit with them. You can possibly get a discount and a tour guide to tell you all the little stories about the great history of this place.
Isola San Biagio is the second largest of the five islands. Just like the first, the beauty is amazing, something you will only appreciate when seen in real life. San Biagio has a great camping site that is perfectly located to give you a magnificent view of the lake and surroundings. You will be comfortable thanks to their combination of nature with modern technology. Being in such a magical place will give you time to think and refresh your mind before going back to your hectic life.
Isola dell’ Olivo, Isola di Sogno, and Isola di Trimelone are much smaller than Isola del Garda and San Biagio but just as beautiful. If you love nature, then this area is the place to have your holiday. You will feel incredibly close to nature and yourself.
